My feathers are feeling ruffled by ruffles. Over the last few days the International Fashion Weeks are seeing ruffles walking down the catwalk adding a lovely touch of romance to many collections.
Ruffles can around a neckline or generally speaking on your top half work easier in a day to day wardrobe. Be wary that too many ruffles especially around hip and bottom area as they may not always be that flattering if mother nature missed you out when handing giving that tall willow gene.
Also too may ruffles in pretty pastels can reminisce of over done wedding outfits, add a feather fascinator and there is strong whiff of a garden marquee and prawn vol au vents.
But aside from my little warnings if you are a busy mum looking for a quick and effective new blouse to update your favourite jeans for the Spring Summer season then definitely seek out a blouse that has a few ruffles. Unfortunately, as of yet I have not found a good version on the high-street but when I do I of course will pass this on. What I’m finding with the high-street attempts at this trend is trying to save money on fabric costs is only allowing for small mean looking ruffles and I’m looking for more romance and billowing. So high-street stop, more fabric please.
For this trend post I have looked towards vintage, as I do with most things, for my personal inspiration board.
